Radiating The Cascading Fragrance of Your Delight. With Love to Chitrangada Sharan

Heavenly stars and moon


Indigo moon

Carousel of Lights
Carousel of Lights | Source

In my simplicity, sweetness grows, o ego-thief,

I am satisfied to look at the starlit heavens;

To fly to the moon and bring it down.

O crimson-crescent lover, come play with me,

Here in my sand-castle of Mary’s little lamb.

Free me from possessions; my mundane gains.

Come! Take these transient things from me.

How I love the playful beauty of carousel lights;

Of children flying their murmuring kites!

Blend into my Heart, sweet Silence, O indigo sky!

I beg the freedom of the phoenix; to take wings,

Soaring into the unknown realms of celestial excellence,

Dancing with the smile of Thy grandeur;

Radiating the cascading fragrance of Your Delight.

Ha ha. You too, Miz, you too. Birds are my favourite and that of the esoteric too. They represent the sweet freedom of the Soul. Gratitude.

Ah! My Sweet Chitrangada. You came. What a beautiful sentiment you expressed! You've brought God into the picture. So meaningful to me! Of course, it is to the God or Love in you that I appeal; it is from the Source within that this lustre comes.

So happy you like this, and yes, I do make an effort also with the pics and videos. God bless you too. The Absolute Brahman is our eternal Friend. Jai Lord! Jai Prabhu!

It sure is nice to read such a wonderful peaceful piece. Light and looking toward heaven. Somehow a ray of light can carry me away from my earthly binds.
